You Matter:

As an student, you have to take care of YOU to ensure that you are in the best position possible to achieve academic success. In this highly motivational talk, Logan Taylor, an author, educational speaker and founder of Y.B.Normal?, shares why it’s critical for every scholar—to realize the importance of establishing and maintaining positive mental health, self-care and self-advocacy. After the impact of COVID-19, it’s even more imperative for students to recognize their feel in of insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty just as much as they embrace the feelings of gratitude and relief for overcoming major obstacles. Taylor’s message is best captured by Dr. Seuss, who wrote, “It’s OK to not be OK but it’s not OK to stay that way.” As an student, you’ll leave this talk empowered and ready to create a safe school space for this type of vulnerability.

PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support):

When it comes to high school graduation, students who live in poverty are five times more likely to fail, according to a recent study by Educationdata.org. And with the disruption of normalcy because of COVID-19 at schools across the country, failure rates are expected to be even higher. In this talk, Logan Taylor, author, educational speaker and founder of Y.B.Normal?, offers solutions to change these stats. The success, he says, of our schools lies in the ability to teach students the power of positive behavior. Taylor shares the PBIS framework of principles, which can be used in schools to increase the desired level of important social and learning outcomes. PBIS is an evidence-based three-tiered framework for improving and integrating all of the data, systems and practices affecting student outcomes every day. It also helps students focus on choices that promote academic success and social competence. If you want your students to get fired up about school and to envision better futures, this presentation gives you the tools to get started.



Many students come to school and suffer silently. Taylor accesses his counseling skills and experience interacting with countless numbers of children across the world, to provide meaning to “self-worth” and “self-love.”

I had Logan speak to all 1500 of my teachers and principals in the fall. Logan’s message was so moving and inspirational that my staff asked him to return after the presentation. His presentation was so powerful that there wasn’t a dry eye in the room including myself. We loved it.
